At a track which disguises the GSX-RR's weaknesses, both Suzuki riders were strong


Buried on the brakes


Chasing a dream


'T is but a scratch!


Jack Miller loves Phillip Island, and it showed


For the first time this year, Pol Espargaro consistently outperformed his Tech 3 teammate


Wheelie... whatever day it is today.


Still the most spectacular setting in the world


The wings worked on the Ducati, just not for Andrea Dovizioso


Pedrosa's Motegi revival was short-lived. He could get no drive out of the last corner at PI


Call a boy Maverick and he is sure to turn into a star


Fresh rubber. Time to go fast


Marc Marquez at full lean


The Pramac Ducatis did not have the pace at Phillip Island they have had elsewhere

Funny what a special track and home motivation can do. Jack Miller was impressively quick on Friday


Marc Marquez, complaining about rear grip. Didn't stop him from being the fastest man on the day


The wind at Phillip Island makes aerodynamics difficult. Ducatis went out with no wings, just the upper wings, just the lower wings, and both sets


Jorge Lorenzo knows what he has to do, and is getting on with doing it


Look at the timesheets, and Rossi is in trouble. Look at race pace, and he's right there


Back in MotoGP, and not a million miles off the pace: Ant West


Phillip Island is a rider's track. Maverick Viñales is one hell of a rider


Big sky down under


Tires and brakes are the big talking point at PI. Blue stripe = asymmetric front. Brake is the high mass 320mm, but with brake cowling to keep the temperature in


Bradley Smith ahead of newly-named MotoGP Legend Nicky Hayden. The American is having a good weekend at a track he loves


Marc Marquez' hand injury may not have slowed him, but he still needs the special handlebar grip


Lean and gas it up, that's the secret. Cal Crutchlow shows how.


It's fair to say that Dani Pedrosa is back at last


Andrea Iannone, aboard Pegasus


Up and over Lukey Heights. One of the finest spots in racing


The Blue Flash

Marc Marquez' Honda RC213V, wet set up


Valentino Rossi's Yamaha YZR-M1


Jorge Lorenzo's M1 - a slightly longer wheelbase than Rossi's bike


Andrea Dovizioso's Ducati Desmosedici GP15 - completely with covers to prevent the tires from cooling down


Maverick Viñales' Suzuki GSX-RR - Suzuki use the same wheel covers as Ducati, and sometimes Honda


The carbon fiber cover of a special rear wheel sensor on Michele Pirro's GP15. Measuring torque?


Ducati's double Desmo wings. These are the larger of the two options


The wings curve up quite significantly


Pit lane, before a race. Bikes at the ready for a potential bike swap


The changing weather caused chaos in pit lane. A lot teams were left to rush suspension changes when the rain started


At Suzuki, they did a complete shock swap. Incredible to watch the speed with which MotoGP mechanics manage this

In the wet, there was only ever going to be one winner from this battle


Clear visors make watching motorcycle racing in the rain even more interesting


Smoke, steam, or spray? You choose


Preparing bike swaps. Rules on bike positioning are taken very seriously indeed


Yonny Hernandez was one of several riders to crash out of the MotoGP race


You know how this feels, and it's not good


Fast at last, and off to Ducati


Andrea Dovizioso got back on the podium again at last


What the riders leave behind. Rubber everywhere


Jack Miller got a brilliant start, chasing down his teammate, before taking down his teammate


After his first podium, Danilo Petrucci told the press he kept expecting to wake from a dream


Tensest part of the day for Pol Espargaro


Nicky Hayden had a great result at Silverstone, winning the Open class


Love is... helping your future husband chase his dream


Not Bradley Smith's best result, but another solid finish on his way to his best year in MotoGP


He went thattaway


Toughest task on the grid? Selecting the next Elite:Dangerous mission

Bradl The Brilliant Bavarian. Pretty good on an Aprilia too.


Bradley Smith. The sixth best motorcycle racer in the world, at the moment


Speed. Andrea Iannone in motion


#41. So Aleix knows which bike to get on


This could have been taken at any race. Ironic, given that Scott Redding had a fantastic weekend at Silverstone


Desmo Dovi, mediocre in qualifying, brilliant in the race


CWM's loss is photography's gain. Wonderful colors on Cal Crutchlow's bike


Loris Baz has been impressive on the Forward Yamaha, making rapid progress in the Open class


Who says Superbike riders don't get their elbow down? Eugene Laverty has adapted quickly, and shone at Silverstone


Big speed in a little package


The fastest pensioner in the west. Or the east, for that matter


One fast Colombian


Marc Marquez is fast again, much to the chagrin of the Movistar Yamaha men


Maverick, motoring


On Saturday, you would not have bet against this man. You would have lost your money, though

Valentino Rossi, pondering tire use


With CWM gone, the LCR bikes are looking prettier. Even Jack Miller's which was less encumbered by the troubled sponsor


For someone who looks set to abandon the Honda, Scott Redding looks like a happy man on it


The downside to winglets. You need a lot of spares


Marquez at Silverstone. Finding a way to be fast


Early morning ritual: roll the bikes out and help them roar into life


The King of England


Eugene Laverty was good here in WSS, good here in WSBK, so no surprise he is good at Silverstone on a MotoGP bike


Green and black, fighting colors


Keeping an eye on the competition. Not threat yet, but be wary of the future


Big skies. Silverstone is like Assen in that respect


The Maniac? Not so much nowadays, but fast nonetheless


Suzuki sweeper


The perils of missing sponsors. Need a lot of tape to cover them up


Total control, believe it or not

Marquez stalked, but Lorenzo was not for stalking


Niccolo Antonelli. Yes, he does a bit.


Rossi finally qualified on the front row at Brno. It didn't help him much


The new Ducati. Much narrower around the fairing, with wider wings. Dovizioso liked it


Iannone didn't. Left the new bike, right the old


Attention to detail: moulded cover for TV camera, complete with aerials


The champ and his mentor: Tito Rabat with crew chief Pete Benson


Unstoppable. And an unfortunate helmet design for the 70th anniversary of VJ Day


Not so pretty in pink. Worth it to get such a close up view of the bikes, though


Yes, that's the kind of elevation change we are talking about at Brno


Noblesse oblige. Karel Abraham wasn't really fit enough to ride, but he had to, and acquitted himself admirably under the circumstances


Stefan Bradl has come into Aprilia and immediately started making life difficult for Alvaro Bautista


Former teammates, still fierce rivals. The Alexes Rins and Marquez


New leads old, but not for long


Moto3 produced another thriller, though championship leader Danny Kent was less than thrilled about it


Moto2 may not have had the thrills at the front, but the spectacle is still there further back


Mr Reliable. Bradley Smith was best satellite rider once again at Brno


The second half of the season has been tough on Aleix Espargaro


Things could be worse. Scott Redding has had a nightmare season in 2015


Once again, a Honda tried to kill Dani Pedrosa. Once again, the toughest nut on the grid did not crack

Valentino Rossi is always fast on Sunday. This time, he was fast on Saturday too


Fast at Brno? A sign of the work Honda has done to solve the RC213V's problems


Fast, bumpy and hot. The Brno track caused problems for many, including Pol Espargaro


"I looked like an amateur," Pedrosa said of riding with a badly injured foot. A very fast amateur, though


I've seen the future, and its name is Maverick Viñales


This is what a lap record looks like before it happens


Rolling thunder through rolling hills


Mr Reliable. You would never have thought you would be calling Andrea Iannone that.


6 looks good on an Aprilia


This is Brno. Trees, hills, bikes. And we're back here for another five years


Dani Pedrosa is not the only rider to struggle with injury. Karel Abraham is not really fit, but wants to ride at home


King of the Open Class. Hector Barbera has done well


That Honda RC213V ain't easy

Could Jorge Lorenzo be King of Brno on Sunday?


Marc Marquez is determined to stand in his way


The aftermath...


... of this. The oil leak that scuppered Pedrosa's chances at Brno


The Suzuki loves the corners at Brno, hates the hill


You can never be too careful


Forward. Back. For the next three races at least.


Heat plus heavy braking = the need for brake cooling. This is how Ducati does it.


Stefan Bradl has hit the ground running on the Aprilia. Unfortunately, the Italians have already signed Sam Lowes for next year...


Mr Reliable. The Maniac. Cognitive dissonance.


Top satellite rider. Tech 3 say he has a contract waiting for him. Smith says he hasn't seen it. The sooner it is settled, the better


A seemingly innocent crash at Barcelona put Abraham out of action for a long time. A rider's career hangs by a silken thread


Trees, hills, motorcycles. That's Brno


A new motor, a new fairing, a new Desmo Dovi?


Fresh from victory at Suzuka, Pol Espargaro had a disastrous morning and an outstanding afternoon

The return of the king


Jorge Lorenzo put up a brave defense, before having to admit defeat


Tito Rabat found himself being taken out by Franco Morbidelli in the last corner


The aftermath. Morbidelli looks on in disbelief at what he has wrought


Trying too hard? Bradley Smith doesn't think so


The master of Moto3


Behind Danny Kent, the scrap for second is serious


Maverick vs Petrux: there are great battles up and down the field in MotoGP


A long time coming: Belgium had been waiting for 32 years for victory, before Xavier Simeon finally delivered


The sweet taste of victory


Freight train coming


Jorge Lorenzo seized the lead of the MotoGP race with a brilliant move round the outside of Marquez into Turn 2


The GSX-RR Cup


Pol Espargaro follows where his teammate led


Dani Pedrosa stalked....


Then finally passed Valentino Rossi. The Hondas were strong at the Sachsenring


Still leading. And at his age. The hope of old guys everywhere
